Emily Dale Keaton Briers passed from this life to her heavenly home on Sunday, December 24, 2017 following a long illness.
Born August 27, 1938 in Hinton, she was the daughter of the late Berma "Bunch" Honaker Keaton and O. Ike Keaton.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her brother Ronald L. Keaton, sister-in-law Rita Richey Keaton, and infant grandson Christopher N. Briers.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 60 years Charles "Scott" Briers, Jr. and their three children, Greg Briers and wife Kelly of Huntington, Jeff Briers and wife Carolyn of Crystal River, FL, and daughter Susan Briers Boland and husband Mitchell of Shady Spring.

She was active in her church and involved in numerous civic and community organizations. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and was an avid collector of Hallmark ornaments.
